American singer-songwriter Lady Gaga made a decision to speak out against her former partner R. Kelly, who has been involved in the sexual harassment allegations.

In a lengthy status on her social media account, the singer made an apology for her collaboration with R&B artist Kelly on the song Do What U Want (With My Body) in 2013. Also in that post, she supports the victims who bravely speak out their stories of sexual assault they have suffered for a long time.

"I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously," posted she.

As a victim of sexual abuse, she shared that she worked with R. Kelly at a "dark time" in her life. She intended to do something intensely "defiant and provocative" since the singer still hadn't got over the trauma which happened in her life. "I think it’s clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time," said the star of A star is born.

Lady Gaga continued, "If I could go back and have a talk with my younger self I’d tell her to go through the therapy I have since then, so that I could understand the confused post-traumatic state that I was in - or if therapy was not available to me or anyone in my situation - to seek help, and speak as openly and honestly as possible about what we’ve been through.”

She vowed that she wouldn't collaborate with R. Kelly anymore. The singer also stated that she will take her song off iTunes as well as other streaming services. Once again, she was sorry for her "poor judgment" and not saying that sooner.

Previously, in 2013, Lady Gaga stood by R. Kelly. She said that there were still untrue things that were written for them sometimes. That was how the bond between them appeared, and she believed that her collaboration with Kelly had nothing controversial.

The discussion about Lady Gaga's collaborator comes after a documentary series entitled Surviving R Kelly, which is about allegations of sexual harassment against the artist. But he denied all the accusations.
